    Chiral smectic A liquid crystal materials of the de Vries type (with molecules tilted relative to the layer normal) exhibit analog field-induced (electroclinic) optic axis rotation accompanied by an increase in birefringence. We identify two such de Vries smectic A[sup *] materials and use them...

    A dual-mode operation featuring a dual-frequency liquid crystal (LC) cell has been proposed in this paper. This dual-mode operation conducted by the horizontal switching allows the device to work as either dynamic or memory mode, named in terms of the monostability and bistability, respectively,...
